This place is an oldie but goldie! Ever since they opened their doors in 1870, Conditori La Glace has been delivering cakes and pastries worthy of kings and queens across the globe. It’s a place filled with history and it’s obvious when you taste their exquisite confections. They offer a wide range of cakes and pastries with service that is professional and thoughtful.

If you can’t get enough of that sourdough bread, this is the place of your dreams. At Meyer’s Bakeries, the art of creating the perfect bread is part of the daily schedule. They only use the very best ingredients available and they even grind their own flour. The deep flavours that the perfect flour mixture will create are amazing. If the smell of fresh bread gets you up in the mornings, then this is your place to start the day.
This place has been awarded with a prize for AOK’s “Best Pastries in Town 2014”. If that isn’t enough reason to pay them a visit we don’t know what is! Apparently Bertels Salon is Copenhagen’s most prominent cheesecake experts. With a wide selection of flavours to choose from, we can assure there’s a pick for everyone.
